On August 3, 2022, she took to Twitter to share how "Some people have strokes of luck; I had the other kind."
Ruth Buzzi is back, making jokes barely two months after he had a stroke. The Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In actress took to Facebook to share her experience of going on an ATV (all-terrain vehicle) adventure and indulging in a few drinks, after her husband Kent Perkins revealed she had suffered from a series of "devastating strokes."
"Doing some ranch-hopping in the ATV today which involved just a little bit of day drinking," Buzzi, 86, wrote on the social media platform on September 2, 2022, alongside a picture of herself holding a can of beer in her hand with her tongue out and a wink, per PEOPLE.
"That’s a Corona Premiere in my hand at our neighbors’ (Jack and Juanita Bragg’s) ranch. And shoot… I was going on 18 hours of sobriety. Still a couple of hours until wine-thirty. Oh, well, Que- Syrah, Syrah," she concluded her post.
Nearly a month ago, on August 3, 2022, Buzzi took to Twitter to share a health update. "Some people have strokes of luck; I had the other kind," she wrote, alongside a picture of her and her cat.
After thanking her followers for "all your love, messages, cards, letters and Sweet Tweets," the comedian added, "And although my final arrangements include cremation, I'm not quite ready to make an ash out of myself. xoxoxo."
On July 19, 2022, Buzzi's husband shared the news of her stroke via Facebook. He made the announcement along with a photo of Buzzi holding a piece of pie, a picture that was taken on her birthday in 2021.
"This photo was from nearly a year ago on Ruthie's birthday. She wants you to know she is not in pain and is aware you are sending your best wishes her way as she battles the results of devastating strokes that have left her bedridden and incapacitated," Perkins wrote on the comedian's official Facebook page at the time.
He added that she can "still speak and understand" and "still recognizes all her friends and loved ones. I am reading to her your wonderful comments and she smiles."

Perkins said at the time that he is now "living with an attitude of gratitude for 43 years of marriage to my best friend, the greatest person I ever met, the one and only Ruth Buzzi."
"Her love for others knows no bounds, and she has spent a lifetime making people smile," he wrote. Perkins then saluted his wife for "dealing with the situation bravely, and still with humor, believe it or not... and with the love of God in her heart and soul, she thanks you for being her friend. And for the love you've shown her continuously for the past six decades or more..."
"Whatever happens, please know you have always been loved right back in return," he concluded.
The good news: one foot in the grave still leaves one out, ready and available for kicking a@@. Thanks for your cards, messages, prayers and good wishes!— RUTH BUZZI (@Ruth_A_Buzzi) August 28, 2022
